Its been a wild ride so far...Life is pretty bizarre, twisted, beautiful, exhausting and sacred. I like to keep it simple. I have it narrowed down to hanging with my kids, a few amazing humans I adore, my work and my free time. I bust my ass at my work, and love it! I am a sci-fi nerd and my house is filled with books, I can never have nor read enough of them.
I crave someone who wants to hang out, get to know each other. My kids are old enough to be self-sufficient and I really love being able to focus more on me (which is an awesome stage...finally woo-hoo!). Plus in the work I do its pretty exhausting. I work as an advocate at a Sexual and Domestic Violence Non-Profit. I work with survivors at a shelter, crisis line, going to the ER, going to Court, visiting Jails. Its hard work and extremely fulfilling. When I get home I want to relax, play, dance, sing, smoke a cigarette on my porch with an amazing cup of coffee and share in some fascinating dialogue.
What I’m doing with my life
Endless spark...One foot in front of the other... deep curiosity
keeps me moving forward...Raising two amazing daughters...I have
been described as having fortitude...No matter what life presents I
am able to move through...I have studied Welding, Botany,
Herbology, Psychology, Writing, Art... I never know what adventure
will present itself... I make a rough plan and see where the path
I’m really good at
Not taking it personal, laughing at myself and walking through the
fire... Saying the exact thing that needs to be said when necessary
and making an ass out of myself on a regular basis...learning how
to fail with grace.

Food: I love to cook and love to eat. Spent time in the South
(special place in my heart for Southern cookin') I love to explore
and try new styles all the time. I make recipes from scratch. My
cooking is like my painting. I approach the canvas and the cuisine
by allowing it to tell me what it will become. I rarely follow
recipes, if I do I only use it as a reference point and the meal
grows beyond the recipe given.
The six things I could never do without
Fingers digging in the dirt, the smell right after it rains,
sunrise before anyone's awake, hanging out in my garden, the warmth
from my little and not so little one (2 daughters -11 and 18)...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
anything and everything...my mind moves really fast...I wander and
get lost in dimensions and portals within my mind...and love
finding other humans who enjoy conversations that are
multidimensional and as deep as I go I never forget to laugh at
myself...and recognize that "its just a ride".
On a typical Friday night I am
fluctuates vastly based on scenario, mood, options, weather, cash
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Its not really private but I rarely discuss with others...I am a
huge Dr. Who fan and love to attend Comic Con...Nerdy, dorky,
geeky...mmmm! I find sexxxy ;)
